Oh Leonardo....not Di Caprio... Da Vinci!!!! D

Hello once again

It is challenge time over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time it is May's choice of theme 

Anything with Wings

This canvas was never meant to be like this.  I had transferred a few images of Mona and Leonardo but didn't like it apart from the gorgeous lady at the bottom left.  

I lay some modelling paste, a little crackle embossing paste and fine ropey twine on the top. I randomly daubed olive green, red and gold acrylic paint over the textures.  I don't know why I bothered as it cannot be seen lol.  

I generously covered the pretty lady with rock candy. I broke the bars of the birdcage so the lovely lady can be seen .......  it had to be done.  I glued a couple of birds on the cage with a rose bud.  

The flowers on the right started off as putrid blue and white, awful looking.  I painted them in gold as I did all the embellies, including the jigsaw pieces before stamping the man himself on them.  The clock face with the wings sit behind him... Did not have any single wings in my stash ;-(( so had to improvise.  

The heart I cut out using a paper artsy die, triple embossed and mica powders over the top once I had bent and cracked it up.  Finally words were added.  I do hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it.  Now for the copious amount of piccies.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and hope you will come back again.   Why not pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with our fun challenge.
